Pergamum & Acropolis & Ascleption

After meeting up your Guide at the Port of Izmir, we drive to Pergamum. Bergama is home to two of the countrys most celebrated archaeological sites: the Acropolis and the Asclepion of ancient Pergamum both listed among the top 100 historical sites on the Mediterranean.


Built on a conical hill rising 1,000 feet above the surrounding valley, Pergamum (or Pergamon) was an important capital city in ancient times. Its Greek name means “citadel.” The modern city of Bergama, 70 miles north of Izmir, is the successor of ancient Pergamum.


Most of the extraordinary buildings and monuments in Bergama date to the time of Eumenes II (197-159 BC), including the famed library, the terrace of the spectacularly sited hillside theater, the main palace, the Altar of Zeus and the propylaeum of the Temple of Athena. In the early Christian era, Pergamums church was a major center of Christianity and was one of the Seven Churches of Revelation (Rev. 2:12-17).


The ancient city is composed of three main parts: the Acropolis, whose main function was social and cultural as much as it was sacred; the Lower City, or realm of the lower classes; and the Asclepion, one of the earliest medical centers on record.


*** Please remember:

– Comfortable walking shoes and clothing, a hat, sunscreen are recommended.
